What’s New

The enhancements and changes that are available in Build July 27, 2021.

StyleBooks

StyleBook definition supports a splat expression

A splat expression [*] provides a simpler way to retrieve a certain attribute from a complex list for all the iterations. You can now include splat expressions in a StyleBook definition. Earlier, you had to specify a repeat construct to retrieve the same information.

Syntax: list[*].attribute

This expression iterates over all the items of the list specified to its left and returns the attribute value specified to its right. When you want to retrieve an IP address or host name of each virtual server from the list, you can use the following splat expressions:

Example 1:

 $parameters.server-members[*].hostname
<!--NeedCopy-->

This expression returns a list of host names from all the server-members.

Example 2:


 $parameters.server-members[*].sub-domains[*].name
<!--NeedCopy-->

This expression returns a list of all names under the subdomains of each server-members.

These expressions always return the right-most element type’s list.

Manage SSL certificates by using StyleBooks

You can now write a StyleBook definition to allow users to select SSL certificates from the ADM certificate store. This store lists the existing SSL certificates that are uploaded to your ADM server. With this feature, you can store SSL certificates at one place that is the ADM certificate store and reuse them whenever required.

Add this field in the Create Configuration packGUI using the new certkey parameter. And, it is an object type attribute. The following is an example snippet to specify in the StyleBook definition

parameters:
-
    name: certificate
    label: Certificate
    description: Certificate to be bound to this virtual load balanced application`
    type: certkey
    required: true
<!--NeedCopy-->

When creating a configuration pack, a user can add or select SSL certificates from the certificate store. Also, the user can select the same certificate for multiple configuration packs. Earlier, users were able to specify certificate details only while creating a configuration pack.

Fixed Issues

The issues that are addressed in Build July 27, 2021.

Miscellaneous

In App Dashboard, when you drill down an application and in the Web Insight tab, the See more option under Clients does not work. This issue is also observed in Applications > Web Insight.

[NSHELP-28153]

Under Infrastructure > Instance Advisory > Security Advisory, when you click Proceed to upgrade workflow to upgrade a vulnerable Citrix CPX instance, an error message appears. This issue happens because the ADM upgrade workflow supports only MPX, SDX, and VPX instances.

With this fix, a separate CPX column is added under Current CVEs > ADC instances are impacted by CVEs. To upgrade a vulnerable CPX instance, click the document link in the GUI, which ishttps://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-adc-cpx/current-release/upgrade-cpx.html.

[NSADM-75311]

When you remove an ADC instance from theInfrastructure > Instance Dashboard > Citrix ADC page, the Asset Inventory page does not update the claim status of the instance. As a result, sometimes, the ADC instance gets automatically registered after around 15 minutes.
